    Default Matrix Upside down

    Recently bought the " Bob Seger-Little Drummer Boy" E1.31 Matrix sequence from HolidaySequences.com. When I can make it display (50% of the time I try) it always displays upside down. I have bought 2 other E1.31 Matrix Sequences for the same company and they work fine. I have set the "start location" in xLights to all 4 starting locations, sometimes I get something (always upside down), sometimes I get nothing.

    My setup...

    xLights Version 2019.40 74 bit
    Falcon F16V3 Using 12 ports in Zig Zag mode.
    FPP Version: v3.0 Host: FPP-1
    RGB Pixel Matrix Board 24x50
    Matrix is on Output 1 of the F16v3.
    No other sequences running, totally stand alone.

    Ideas, please?

    Thank you
    Bill

    You don' specify vertical or horizontal , so flip is the closest I could think of .
    I do not mean physically flip , I mean configuration wise !

    Well you don't say what software your using though regardless it appears that your configuration is not correct .
    Redo your configuration in a different order and save it , then try it again in display viewer etc.

    As noted in first posting....

    My setup...

    xLights Version 2019.40 64 bit
    Falcon F16V3 Using 12 ports in Zig Zag mode.
    FPP Version: v3.0 Host: FPP-1
    RGB Pixel Matrix Board 24x50
    Matrix is on Output 1 of the F16v3.
    No other sequences running, totally stand alone.

    I have complete removed xlights and all it's files and reinstalled twice, I have redone the setup page and the layout page twice. I have 2 E1.31 Matrix Sequences from the same source working like they should. This 3rd one is for some reason upside down.

    Help???
    THank you

    Whoops , didn't see the lower text .

    if horizontal , swap the rows from bottom to top .
    Your actual matrix should be wired to suit your configuration along with your controllers configuration i believe.

    Found out how to flip left to right and up and down. Still displays upside down. I have even reversed the cables, I.e. moved cable 1 to output 12 and 12 to 1 and so on, still upside down.
